I've been fighting a cold all week, but finally had to admit defeat this morning, and call in sick to my sister. I have a feeling she doesn't mind getting to play with her baby all day. I rarely get sick, so when I do I go rather overboard with grumpiness, because I'm not used to the mucus, aches, and exhaustion.
But, moving on from the whining...
I think today I'll curl up on the sofa with a commission I just started (a polar bear in a red cardi), several cups of tea, and watch Mary Poppins. I can't remember what the video service is called in the US, but up here it's zip.ca. Since we don't have cable (in fact, we don't even have a TV, just a large computer screen) this is how we get our entertainment. I love being able to choose what we should watch from such a huge list, and it's always a surprise what we get next.
Our list is pretty evenly split between movies and TV shows, so we have both evening and weekend viewing. We have pretty similar taste in movies, but my hubbie draws the line at musicals and Shakespeare, so I get to watch those on my own time. As for TV shows, we've already made our way through the original Star Trek series and the animated series. Now we are now on season 2 of TNG (can you tell we're geeks?). I think TNG is my favourite, though, since I remember watching it as a kid/teen with my dad. We almost never missed an episode :)
